For Women & Parents

Conscious that parents are the first educators of their children, the study centre seeks to work alongside parents to reinforce values taught at home. We are passionate about supporting parents in encouraging a positive development of their daughters.

Involvement of Parents

'Time for Mums' is a series of workshops for parents and their friends about relevant parenting topics and character development. The activity is held on specific Saturdays of each month from 3.30-5.30pm. For more information and dates about coming sessions, please contact

Mothers' groups allow women to develop friendships, share knowledge and learn new skills. These activities help mothers deepen their insight into their work as the primary educators of their children. While each group varies, topics generally cover parenting skills, strategies for building a healthy and nurturing home environment and character building for themselves and their children.

Heathgrove works in conjunction with Family Enrichment Australia ( and we provide periodic seminars on parenting and topics particularly relevant to raising teenagers. Promoting the importance of marriage and family life is the basis of all FEA activities.

"In today's society it can be a real challenge for teenagers to value themselves and discover who they are and what is important to them. Girls in particular are faced with enormous peer pressure to fit into a particular mould or social group. The study centre provides a safe environment for learning and growth where each girl is encouraged to foster her own uniqueness and strive to be the best person she can be."
